Geisha Bat

I did this ages ago. I love bats, mangoes, inaccurate representations of mango trees and to some degree the anthropomorphization of animals...or rather I used to until furries ruined everything!

Watercolor on hemp paper.

Details from a collage of mixed media done in acrylic on masonite with magazine cutouts. The pictures were cut from Smithsonian and National Geographic magazines with a few from Omni.

Certain things explained-

The skull is
  • Phineas Gage's

  • Some of the figures in the boat and the death king overlooking the scene are pictures of a Soviet
  • Propoganda Chess Set

  • People on the near bank of the river by
  • José Guadalupe Posada

  • Floating faces courtesy of early New England
  • gravestone rubbings
  • Labels:

    Death is an acceptable excuse for an absence
    Indifference much harder to bear
    Well used as I am to the perpetual distance
    For the dead, one can compose a prayer

    For the dead, one can breathe, and grieve, remain and endure
    And now breathing I do much the same
    Keep obserdevotions, prepare for the worst, unsure
    And wait, as pawns do, movements in game
